SWiM, the Semantic Wiki for Mathematical Knowledge Management, currently in a prototype stage and being implemented by Christoph Lange at Jacobs University Bremen, is a fork of IkeWiki. Its pages are stored in OMDoc or OpenMath, both semantic mathematical markup languages. For reasoning and querying, the Krextor RDF extractor is used to extract RDF from that markup.

Releases: Past and Future[edit]

While the latest proper release is quite old, work has been going on, mainly focusing on bugfixes. Please check out the sources or contact the developer for the latest version.

In future it is planned to port the mathematical extensions to IkeWiki's successor KiWi.
